Main known issues

In some versions (noted in czech and polish version) there's campaign file mismatch. If you receive an error during installation of the patch try to press Ignore and continue with the insallation. The patch still could run.

This is beta version and we urge not to install it unless you want to betatest it. If you're worried about DRM issues for your online version, hard disc space required or any other problems, don't install this patch as any of these problems could hit you. Full tested 1.07 will be coming in near future depending on this

This application will update your ArmA: Armed Assault / Combat Operations to full beta version 1.07.5154






Run the patch exe to apply the patch setup automatically (you may be prompted to choose your exact version in some occassions).

It will install all beta content to a mod folder "BETA" and shortcut "Launch Arma Beta Patch" to your ArmA directory (default is C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA or C:\Program Files\Atari\ArmA).

There's no uninstall option. To remove the beta you need to manually delete the "BETA" directory and shorctut to ArmA from your main game directory. This betaversion also should be uninstalled automatically if you uninstall the game.


You still can run your existing ArmA 1.05 normally by the existing shortcuts and as far as we know, the beta shouldn't interfere with your game so even after you installed the beta you should be able to install this beta patch normally.

To run beta 5154, you need to start "Launch Arma Beta Patch" in your ArmA game directory.

If you need to run ArmA another way, and you still want to run the beta, make sure to start the ArmA.exe from beta subfolder with working directory set to the normal ArmA directory and also with command line option -mod=beta
